Bold, Strong & Warm

Instead of the annual pair of socks or tie you gift your poor old dad every Father’s Day, we at Condé Nast House & Garden recommend you give him something a little warmer and stronger this year. A bottle of Flagstone Last Word Fortified Wine is the perfect way to say thank you to the man who has loved you unconditionally over the years.

From its warm ruby-red colour, spicy, toasty oak notes and dark fruit bouquet to its sweet eccentricity and gentlemanly character The Last Word has a Dad feel to it. Flagstone weaves the ethereal flavours and aromas of fermentation into the dense, complex and tannic structure of their handmade reds. Read a bit more about this unique wine below.
